3Pre-Cut Sweet Potatoes
It’s no secret that sweet potatoes are a dinner staple. These Pre-Cut Sweet Potatoes are ideal for roasting and mashing and save you time, so you’re one step closer to the first bite. Cook Like A Chef >> Tip from Chef Jarrod: Instead of topping your sweet potatoes with marshmallows, roast them up in a casserole dish loaded with smoky paprika-infused butter and fresh chopped rosemary. Once they become tender, sprinkle them with tangy crumbles of goat cheese and finish under the broiler until the cheese gets soft and melty.
